ALUMINUM & ZINC DIE CASTING

Bardane specializes in full dies as well as modular tooling for quick set-up of both short and long runs. Our innovative internal structure allows us to be competitive with off-shore pricing, and also allows us to accommodate any size production run, from as few as 50 pieces to quantities exceeding 1,000,000. Castings requiring inserts of another material, such as aluminum, steel, copper or bronze are also commonly produced by Bardane. Process monitoring with Visi-Trak® equipment, as well as strict adherence to ISO-certified Process Control and Monitoring Procedures ensures dependable repeatability of the casting process. 34 Hydraulic Trim Presses ranging from 1 to 75 tons, including both Tie-Bar and C-Frame designs are used to degate and trim the casting parting line after production. Well-constructed trim dies, built to close tolerances mean that many die castings will require no further finishing or machining operations.

CASTING MACHINES

For the production of aluminum alloy die castings, Bardane utilizes 20 cold chamber die casting machines ranging from 450 to 1200 lockup tons which are able to produce castings up to approximately 25 lbs. The standard alloys cast at Bardane are 360, 380, and 383. We have the flexibility to handle other alloys upon request.

TRIMMING

Die trimming is a very integral part of the casting process. Trimming dies made exactly to the tolerances of the actual part are critical to the overall part quality. Hardened steel cutters and punches clean off gating & overflows, punch holes and any residual flashing that may be on the casting. Care is taken to ensure all trim components are routinely cleaned and sharpened.
